For multispecies feminist theorist Donna J. Haraway, “it matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.” She studies the current age as the Chthulucene (chthon, meaning “earth” in Greek), rejecting the doomsday rhetoric of the Anthropocene, an era in which the human and nonhuman are inextricably linked. For Harraway, learning to stay with the trouble means existing on a damaged Earth, and to find the means to build a more livable future. The book offers proactive ways in which we may reimagine our relation to Earth and all its inhabitants, “making kin” with the species we share the planetwith and interacting from a multispecies perspective.
